Benjamin Hubert for De La Espada: Coracle

Celebrating Benjamin Hubert’s 2011 Coracle design, we take a close look at his use of woven, perforated suede wrapped in a fashion similar to bicycle handles. Available through Matter.

From Matter: Coracle is a hand-woven suede lounge chair with stitched automotive suede and a suede-wrapped steel frame. This large lounge chair is inspired by the small ‘coracle’ boats traditionally used in Wales since the Bronze Age, with its woven construction used to support the user. The crafted ‘tri weave’ is complemented by a suede wrapped steel frame with industrial reference points found in bike handles, creating a tactile touch point for the chair.
